iPad Pro (2017) deals
Hey, wasn’t there supposed to be an iPad Pro 2 this year? Well, yes, but Apple instead decided to name their new iPad Pro, the iPad Pro. Thanks, Apple. We can help make sure you’re able to spot the differences between the two though to make sure you don’t buy the old ones by mistake if you want the latest and best iPad Pro deals.
First up, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is actually a brand new size in the iPad Pro range, as the previous smallest model was 9.7-inches. There is a new 12.9-inch model though. But how do you tell the difference between the old and new iPad Pro versions? Our go-to tactic is to check the internal spec and look for the one key difference. The newest iPad Pros use an A10X processor, and the older ones have the A9X chip. So if you want to be sure you’re getting the latest version, look out for that A10X processor chip. Some retailers may have ‘2017’ in the listing title too, but many, including Apple, don’t.
So let’s look at reasons to buy the new iPad Pro over the older ones. The A10X is a faster processor to give it the edge over the older iPad Pro although the performance boost isn’t huge to be honest. The rear camera gets a modest megapixel boost. The front camera gets a bigger boost though for a much clearer FaceTime experience.
Both of the new models are available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB hard drive sizes. You’ll also need to decide if you want a standard iPad Pro with only Wi-Fi or mobile tethering options available for online activities, or to opt for the considerably more expensive cellular models and a data-only SIM only deal too.
The new iPad Pro screens screens now benefit from smaller bezels and an improved display, for arguably the best iPad screen yet. All things considered though, the list of changes for the new iPad Pro aren’t exactly revolutionary. If the minor improvements don’t float your boat, you should take a look further down this page as we’ve listed the best deals available for the older iPad Pro models. There’s a strong chance you’ll be able to save money by opting for an older model for a while. If not, the latest prices for the new iPad Pro deals are directly below.
iPad Pro 9.7-inch deals
The older 9.7 model is much cheaper than the new 10.5-incher
The iPad Pro 9.7 used to be the gold standard in iPad design, but it’s been dethroned by its slightly larger, yet younger sibling. This model originally arrived in March 2016 instead of an iPad Air 3 and packs many of the outstanding features of the iPad Pro 12.9-inch model. That’s great news for anyone who wanted pro features in a smaller design. This is the cheapest of all the iPad Pro models today too.
iPad Pro 12.9-inch deals
The older iPad Pro is much cheaper than the new version
The iPad Pro isn’t a laptop replacement in the way power users will hope. But it is, by some distance, one of the most brilliant tablets ever released. Using its enormous 12.9-inch screen is simply gorgeous and the power inside is unrivalled in the tablet world. So to anyone that wants an iPad with more power, a better media and reading experience and more abilities than ever before, there’s no question here. Go for the iPad Pro and you’ll love it. With the new 2017 version on shelves now, we’re seeing the price drop on this still excellent iPad.
iPad Air 2 deals
One of the best ‘normal’ iPads available
Apple improved on perfection with the iPad Air 2. There’s a newer iPad 9.7 that acts as a spiritual successor to the iPad Air 2, but you can often find this one for less, especially if you’re happy with refurbished models. The combination of power, better screen, improved design and upgraded OS make this a very, very compelling device – and that’s before getting into the fact the app ecosystem is so much stronger than on Android. It’s even better now iOS 10 is capable of scaling apps so seamlessly – the days of low-res iPhone apps are gone. Here are the best cheap iPad Air 2 deals currently available…
iPad Air deals
It’s a year older but this iPad is still a fantastic tablet
It’s a joy to hold the iPad Air – even though it’s now the thicker option compare to the iPad above. From the clever construction to the fast processor to the improved user interface, this iPad may be a bit older but it’s still excellent. Choose a cheap iPad Air deal from these options we’ve found:
iPad mini 4 deals
The best 7-inch tablet ever made?
One of the major changes with the iPad mini 4 over last year’s mini 3 is its design. It may look the same, but it’s been slimmed down from 7.5mm to a wafer thin 6.1mm. It’s also now more powerful, has a stunning screen and the battery is still a 10-hour beast. The A8 processor is a good step up from the A7 inside the mini 3 so if you’re going to play 3D games or throw around some of the more hefty iPad apps from the App Store, this is certainly your best option.
iPad mini 3 deals
A great iPad, but we prefer the mini 4 now
If you want an iPad mini – this is another great option because it’s almost as good as the iPad mini 4 above, but prices aren’t always cheaper on this one now. The 7.9-inch screen is the perfect size in our opinion – you can hold it in one hand but it’s still big enough to be satisfying when you watch videos or browse the web. Here’s every cheap iPad mini 3 deal you could ever want, and then some…
iPad mini 2 deals
The first iPad mini with Retina display is a deal-tastic marvel
If you’re looking for the best iPad deal you might well find it on this iPad right here. Deals on this iPad fluctuate regularly – you can often find it for cheaper than the iPad mini 3 but sometimes it’s more expensive, depending on retailers and stock levels. If the iPad mini 3 above is cheaper, definitely get that one over this! Here are the best cheap iPad mini 2 deals currently available…
iPad mini deals
The cheapest iPad out there but it’s still a winner
So the original iPad mini may not have a Retina display but it’s available for well under £200 in the UK and so for the right deal it’s still worth your while considering. Again though, if the price is similar to the iPad deals above, get the ones above if for no other reason than the super-sharp Retina displays they offer. Here are the best cheap iPad mini deals we can find…
